Gifts of shares, securities or other property benefit particularly well from Queen’s College’s charitable status. The value of a gift of shares to Queen’s can be increased considerably through tax relief. Please contact the Development Office if you would like to find out more about making a gift of shares.
Tax Refund Gifts
If you are a UK taxpayer who has to complete a Self Assessment form, you can use your tax return form to donate to Queen’s College all or part of any refund due to you. You can also choose to make your refund a Gift Aid donation.
As an alternative to a standing order, you can donate on a regular basis through payroll giving. This is a means of making a gift directly from your salary before income tax is deducted. As a result you will automatically get tax relief at your top rate of tax, with Queen’s College receiving the gross value. Please contact your employer's own payroll department to find out whether they participate in this scheme.
Many employers offer matching gift schemes, whereby they double or even treble donations made by their employees - in other words a gift made to Queen’s College could be increased if an employer was able to contribute the same, or a greater amount. Please contact your employer's personnel department to see if they operate a matching gift programme.
